  2. Ep 4 Community Spotlight:
    1. Zack 
      1. Game one - a player kept recurring wasteland and strip mine to destroy most of my lands. Lost to another player’s voltron’ed up commander, who also went on to win the game.
      2. Game two - Was able to get an infect counter on every player at the table. Got out Seedborn Muse and Karn’s bastion. The player on my right won with a combo where he had infinite mana and card draw, cast Enter the Infinite, put season’s past on top of his library, used beast within on all of our permanents, then uses reality shift to mill out libraries. 
      1. Game 1 Urza comboed off on Turn 4
      2. Game 2 Urza comboed off on Turn 5
        1. Edgar Markov played by Ivan
        2. The Ur0Dragon played by Simon
          1. Michael Rite of Replicationed a Woodfall Primus and left Ivan (playing Edgar with a single plains). However, Ivan had Azor’s Gateway, and eventually flipped it, adding 40ish mana each turn
          2. Simon (Ur-Dragon) took out Michael 
          3. Ivan (Edgar) used Forerunner of the Legion to find Mirror Entity. I had Raff in play and a Contagion Engine, and I politiced Ivan to attack Simon (otherwise I’d wipe his team of 1/1s)
          4. On my turn, I cast Karn Liberated, and exiled the flipped Azor’s gateway.
        3. Riku of Two Reflections played by Michael
      3. Game 3 Everyone played lower powered decks
    2. Ryan
  3. Games We Played
    1. 408.2 -> 113.3
  4. Commander Rules!
    1. Helmed by Raff Capashen, Ship’s Mage
      1. The idea here is that I can flash in Planeswalkers on the person to my right’s endstep, and then untap and wrath away all the creatures
      2. https://archidekt.com/decks/117406#Azorius_Super_Friends
      1. Planeswalkers - 23 (This might be too many)
        1. Tell the story of how TH does Hypergeometric Distribution
          1. In probability theory and statistics, the hypergeometric distribution is a discrete probability distribution that describes the probability of successes (random draws for which the object drawn has a specified feature) in draws, without replacement, from a finite population of size
          2. With 20 PW it’s roughly 80% chance to draw one on Turn 1, and it goes up from there
        2. 2 Gideons, 4 Jaces, 2 Karns, 2 Narsets, 3 Teferis, 2 Tezzerets, 2 Ugins
        3. Could have Ultimated Karn Liberated the turn I played him (but that’s not super fun).
        4. Almost ultimated Narset, Transcendant (Emblem, opponent’s can’t cast non-creature spells) 
        1. Board Wipes! 6 (and don’t forget about Humility)
      2. Interaction - 10
        1. The Chain Veil
        2. Deepglow Skate
        3. Arena and Academy Rector (Omniscience, Inexorable Tide, Meishin, the Mind Cage, Mystic Barrier, Sphere of Safety
      3. Synergy - 9
        1. All mana based ramp, the usual suspects, Sol Ring, Signet, Thought Vessel, Mana Vault
      4. Ramp - 9
        1. Karn’s Bastion
        2. Kor Haven
        3. Kjeldoran Outpost
        4. Winding Canyons (This is greedy with only 5 creatures, but explain WHY)
      5. Lands - 38
        1. Many of the cards I’ve talked about previously fit into this category, so I’ll just go over a few of the others here:
          1. Teferi’s Protection (How Appropriate!)
          2. Ignite the Beacon
          3. Contagion Engine
      6. Flex - 10
      7. Summary: The deck played OK, but it feels like it needs more card draw. I was planning on all of my card draw coming from Planeswalker loyalty abilities, but that’s not super reliable.
